Nightfall only ran for a couple years over the CBC in the early 1980s, but thanks to its mix of sharp storytelling, strong acting and disturbing sound effects, this horror anthology continues to be a favorite among fans of the medium. Only problem? Most of the available shows have pretty poor sound quality, and thanks to legal issues with the CBC, it's unlikely we'll be getting an official release anytime soon. But in the mid-1990s, Durkin-Hayes released a handful of Nightfall cassettes. I've...

5 x 15 Mins Written and performed by a brother and sister team, these 5 series see the hapless reporter Jeremy spend 24 hours with a series of "incredible women". To add to the verisimilitude, real well known people speak to Jeremy about the person he spends time with - usually being somewhat disparaging about his subject.   For me, the joke (and the ideas) started wearing thin after Series 4......... 1) Eleanor Fane-Gore: Children's writer, closet Facist and wolf enthusiast Eleanor...

Believed to have been made in the early 1930s, the series is accented with the main characters practicing their choir hymnals. It was...

It is a very rare thing for me, having listened to a drama series, to want to immediately go back and hear it all again. With each series of Number 10, this is exactly how I feel.  Number 10 is perhaps a British radio version of "The West Wing". Each episode is self-contained, though with continuing sub-plots across episodes, and each looks at a single 24 hour period, usually inside and around 10 Downing Street, but always about the Prime Minister and his staff.  In Series 1 to 3,...
